Other comments: May River Iwam, often simply referred to as Iwam, is a language of East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, spoken by approximately 3,000 speakers spoken in Iyomempwi (4.24117°S 141.89271°E), Mowi (4.294971°S 141.929199°E), and Premai villages of Tunap/Hunstein Rural LLG in East Sepik Province, and other villages on the May River. Iwam has recorded traditional numerals from 1 to 4 years ago, not sure if they are still using old traditional numbers or body tally after 4 or now use Tok Pisin numerals after 4. New data for numbers after four is required.
